SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Police in Scottsdale say they've arrested a man driving a photo-enforcement van on suspicion of drunken driving. Sgt. Mark Clark said the van owned by Scottsdale-based Redflex Traffic Systems was spotted driving erratically by a citizen Saturday evening.
Clark said in a statement released Tuesday that the witness reported the driver had hit the curb twice and nearly caused a crash.
A Scottsdale officer caught up with the van, saw it weaving and made a traffic stop.
The driver was identified as 53-year-old man. He reportedly failed field sobriety tests and was booked and released on an extreme DUI charge.
A Redflex statement says the man had undergone a background check that came back clean. He has been fired.
